35 countries. All holidays.

Mostly Europe. Few Africa, middle east, Asia.

None in the Americas, nor Australasia/nz.

Not got too much of the travelling wanderlust now. Lots of places are samey and materialistic.

If i were to travel it would be slow/off beaten track, getting to know or stay with locals and family friendly.

Vietnam is one of the few places i'm interested in.

Maybe safe, chilled parts of south America or a few other places. Maybe quiet parts of Scandinavia (so all but ten places?) But only when warm.

Llubiana was lovely.

Oh dear, wanderlust may be back.

As you can see, I am yet to travel extensively outside of Europe, apart from America. I have recently done a TEFL qualification and would love to travel around south America for a period with my girlfriend. I am currently looking at various TEFL jobs https://www.theteflacademy.com/tefl-jobs with the hope of finding something over there. Does anyone know if it would be possible for my girlfriend to come with me? Would it be difficult for her to get a visa? She has not done a TEFL/CELTA but would be willing to do one if it would increase her chances. Any advice would be much appreciated or if anyone knows of a dedicated south American job board for teaching?

Thanks all :)

Location: Moscow
Languages: English (N), Russian (C1), Esperanto (B2? C1?). The Esperanto test is in the mail, so should find out if I'm a C1 sometime in July. So now I'm reviving my BCS for our trip to Montenegro in August. Of course I'm still using my Russian daily with work and reading Esperanto.
